Dinner Time! 400 Day 1B Entries on the Horizon?

Rayo Kniep holds a six-figure stack at dinner break 

Players are now on break until 6:45 p.m. local time with 375 Day 1B entries on the tournament clock. With that total, the prizepool now sits at $1,074,135 and counting with three more levels and another break before registration closes.

Another new name sits atop the chip counts at dinner break, as John Kenner’s 282,500 chips sits atop the list of 180 remaining players.

Play will continue again tonight until just 15% of the field remains. Day 1A saw 51 players advance to Sunday’s Day 2, and so far at least 56 players will be joining them with about 2 1/2 hours of registration and re-entry left.

While the field thins, some big names have begun to fall including defending champion Michael Persky, Robbi Jade Lew, Eric Baldwin, and Maxwell Young.

At the other end of the spectrum however sit the following top five chip counts:

1. John Kenner – 282,500
2. Daniel Hughes – 274,500
3. I-Le Wu – 238,000
4. Yossi Krispin – 217,500
5. Roman Dorokhin – 207,000

Other notables still in the mix include plenty of big names and a couple of former champions:

Lee Markholt – 175,000
Joseph Spanne – 171,000
Lexy Gavin-Mather – 130,000
Barry Shulman – 120,000
Paul Chai – 117,000
Jarod Minghini – 110,000
Rayo Kniep – 102,500
Anthony Rocco – 93,500
Bilguun Odgerel – 66,500
Paul Richardson – 64,700
